NEW YORK, NY.- Selected historical sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle are on view at the Nohra Haime Gallery from August 2nd through August 29th, 2012. The exhibition includes Dawn, one of her signature and richly colored Nanas, along with her mystical figures, Double Tête and Horus et Sa Grace. Two examples of Saint Phalle's whimsical furniture, such as Clarice Chaise Femme and Charly, also are featured.

Providing a distinct and more intimate look into the artist's ambitious and inventive work, this exhibition runs in conjunction with Niki de Saint Phalle on Park Avenue, a major site-specific installation including nine monumental sculptures standing along Park Avenue from 52nd to 60th Streets.

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) was a prominent French-American artist, self-taught sculptor, painter and filmmaker. Through her work, the multi-faceted Saint Phalle created a unique universe which established her international reputation. Some of her best known public sculptures are The Stravinsky Fountain next to the Centre Pompidou in Paris (1983), The Tarot Garden at Garavicchio in southern Tuscany (opened 1998), The Grotto in Hannover's Royal Herrenhausen Garden (2003, finished posthumously), and the Queen Califia's Magical Circle in California (2003). Saint Phalle, who began her career as an artist in the 1950's, was awarded in 2000 the 12th Praemium Imperial Prize in Japan, considered to be the equivalent to the Nobel Prize in the art world. Born in 1930, in Neuilly Sur Seine, Saint Phalle died in 2002, at the age of 71 in La Jolla, California.
